Consumer Complaint: XXXX stated I opened an account with XXXX/XXXX XXXX XXXX on XX/XX/2015. i never opened an account with XXXX XXXX XXXX or XXXX on XX/XX/2015. I have asked this company to provide signed application, copy of drivers license and they have refused to do so. This is identity thief and I want this fraudulent account remove from my credit file. I have also asked Equifax to remove this account and investigate this account and they refused to do so. I’m not sure why Equifax is allowing a fraudulent company report fraudulent account to consumer credit file. The account number is XXXX per XXXX please send me copies of where I signed credit card receipts since XXXX and XXXX XXXX is saying I owe {$610.00}. The Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. 1681 is U.S. Federal Government legislation enacted to promote the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of consumer information contained in the files of consumer reporting agencies. Equifax is not following The Fair Credit Reporting Act and I want something done about it.
